My dog Franny is a 2 year old Akita-Chow mix. When we first got her, she was a sweet loving little puppy. About 6 months ago we had her at the dog park, and she ended up being involved in a dog fight. We were able to safely separate the dogs without any harm being done. After that incident, she progressively got worse and worse with her aggression and her negative behaviors. On May 15 she bit my 79 year old mother hard enough that she needed stitches. We had a family discussion that night and decided either Franny needs training, or she has to go. We found Diana through thumbtack, and she walked us through her aggression program step by step. When we decided to go with her as a trainer we felt secure knowing we can visit with Franny at any time. Franny spent a few weeks in the aggression program, and then one week in the socialization program. When we were told we can come get Franny we were so excited to see our girl, and to see if the training worked! Franny has been home for about a month now and she has truly become the dog we knew she was. She has gone to the dog park every weekend since being home, she attends day school at the day care at Your Best Friends Dog House. I highly recommend them!!!

Helene stayed with my kitty for 8 days while we were out of town. She did all the small tasks I asked of her around the house; and more importantly, she was wonderful with my cat. He likes lots of attention and she gave it to him. When I came home, I found a happy, well cared for cat. I have already booked Helene for two more lengthy cat sits and would definitely recommend her. She really takes her job seriously and she loves animals.

Wow! After pretty extensive searching for a professional and trustworthy pet sitter for my new cat, I chose to hire Lainey after reading all of her wonderful reviews. She is so friendly and I felt comfortable giving the keys to my apartment to her after meeting her just once. Since I've been on vacation I've received pictures of my cat every day which definitely eases my anxiety about how she's doing while I'm away. She texts me every day to tell me she's been to visit my kitty, so I know she's being taken care of. She did ask as well if I'd like pictures and daily updates and also asked what time I'd like her to visit while I'm gone. I love that she's considerate of different preferences that everyone might have! Overall, she has made my vacation so much less stressful and I'm so glad I found her. She's definitely going to be my go-to in the future for any of my pet sitting needs!

Jackie took care of our dog, cat, and rabbit when we were out of town. She was very professional during our first meeting and left a report of how the pet sitting went. We look forward to using Muttsley's again.

Nicole watched our ferret, dog and cat over Christmas while my animal allergic grandson was in town. She charged a very reasonable price and extended their visit with no problem. Thank you, Nicole!!

My dog is a shelter dog with multiple issues. This is the first time I have needed dog care beyond the assistance of family and friends. I found Nancy, General Manager of Fetch, to be both professional and caring. My dog and I immediately felt comfortable with Nancy and his dog sitter, Jennifer. Jennifer took care of my dog for 4 days and did a tremendous job! She understood exactly what my dog needed. She provided him with the same routine he is used to and a lot of love. To put my mind at ease Jennifer would text with updates and pictures each day. I highly recommend Fetch! Pet Care of Orland Park to Frankfort, to any dog owner.

Jocelyn is wonderful! She even went out of her way to help me with a locksmith situation when I had left town and forgotten to leave my key in the lockbox! I would recommend her company to anyone. She came in twice a day to feed my cat and clean her litterbox and made sure to send me a picture each time she was here. I've called her in twice already and plan to continue doing so!

Stop loooking around. If you want someone that takes even better care of your pet than yourself, you have found it. 😃 Tracy has been watching our cat Mylo for the last 3 days and I'm beyond impressed with her services. Not only did she respond in no time to our last minute request but she also truly cares. It is hard nowadays to find a business that is so focused and caring about the customer. Our cat was sick and we were stressed out about leaving town and Tracy made us feel so comfortable with leaving him with her. She sent me updates via text message, every time she feed him and gave him his medicine. She is super educated about animals and she is probably one of the main reasons Mylo recovered so fast. She even got him a drinking fountain because she recommend that being easier for him to drink. She really cared about our baby Mylo. If you are looking for someone who will not just feed your animal but you know is loving your pet as much as you, don't hesitate to hire Tracy. She is absolutely amazing! Thank you for everything Tracy! 💚

Sara watched my high-energy, high-strung Jack Russell rescue dog (Daisy Duke) twice this summer for two week-long vacations. She was recommended to me by a friend who has known Sara since middle school. I don't put my trust in many people, but Sara proved to be very deserving of it. Daisy was in great hands. Sara came and met with Daisy before the first in-house pet-sitting started. During the visit Sara played fetch with Daisy outside and the two got to know one another. During the pet-sitting week, Sara stayed overnight with Daisy and spent a lot of time playing with her. Daisy pees a lot, because she's a nervous dog, with some issues from her previous lilfe before we adopted her. Sara was patient and understanding. She also made sure Daisy was walked and exercised thoroughly. I HIGHLY recommend Sara. She's affordable, trust-worthy, and compassionate. I am a little doting, when it comes to my children (furry or human) and I appreciated the status texts from Sara letting me know how it went. After the visit I received a summary of how things went, whether Daisy ate well, and how much exercise and TLC she received. I loved this service. Sara also watered by small garden and I tipped her for that, since she did such a stellar job. What completely bowled me over was that Sara washed the bedding so that I didn't have to attend to the guest room, when I arrived home exhausted from our travels. Totally unexpected, but a really nice touch.

Denise has been cat sitting for me for about a year and I could not be happier. Not only does she scoop the poop and feed and water my fur baby, she takes the time to pet and brush her. She is a cat and dog owner so she knows the ins and outs. I definitely would recommend Denise to care for your pet.

Mike is professional, punctual and trustworthy. He did a great job taking care of two indoor cats and a feral colony of 10 outdoor cats while I was out of the country for several weeks. He sent pictures and updates nearly every day. Would hire again without hesitation.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
